Is this gourami a girl?

Hi all, i have a 29 gallon that houses 4 gpuramis--2 male dwarf gouramis, 1 possibly female dwarf flame gourami, and a honey gourami. Honey was sold to me as male but I'm not so sure. His (her?) dorsal and anal fins are more rounded and if you ask me Honey looks full of eggs.

It's hard to tell because the fish kind of blends in with the surroundings, but I'm pretty sure that's a female. The dorsal fin is rounded, yes?

Looks full of eggs too. I'd say female.

She looks full of eggs to me too. Will a honey gourami cross with a dwarf gourami? She's in a 29 gallon with 3 males. I'm wondering if I should pull two of the boys out.

Honey's and Dwarfs are completely different species so no, they will not interbreed.
